In 2006, more than 200 residents, business owners, developers and other stakeholders met to discuss the future of the stretch of Penn Avenue between Penn Circle East (the edge of East Liberty’s commercial core) and Fifth Avenue (between Larimer, Point Breeze, and Shadyside) that has been designated “Bakery Row.” Bakery Row includes Bakery Square–Walnut Capital’s effort to convert the former Nabisco factory into a retail, hotel and office development–and the surrounding land uses. The Bakery Row planning process was an effort to bring about a stakeholder-based shared vision for this area.
